Ending violence against women: community approaches

“Programming to Address Violence Against Women,” reports on 10 case studies showing how targeted and planned interventions actually reduce gender-based violence.

    I’m new to the site but just wanted to thank you guys for posting this new study. Violence against women remains one of the most pervasive human rights abuses worldwide. It’s also the most hidden. Everyone, from the government level to the community, has an important role to play in preventing these injustices and protecting women’s rights.
